Golden Gate by Erin Jennifer Mar

Maggie McKinnon is a junior reporter in San Francisco trying to make a name for herself. She is poking around at the scene of a warehouse fire when she meets Private Investigator, Julia Cassinelli. Maggie and Julia feel an immediate connection to each other. Although Maggie is a lesbian, she is inexperienced and Julia has been burned before by past love affairs.

When Maggie is given a break by her editor to report on a break in at an internet company called Netsports, she meets Julia again. Things begin to hot up for Maggie and Julia. Not just in the love department either. It soon becomes apparent that there is more to the break in than meets the eye. Julia gets beaten up in her office. Maggie is shot at at the scene of one of the warehouse fires. Maggie’s younger drug addict brother Patrick, appears on the scene and there are more attempts on both women’s lives. Somehow it seems that all these things are tied up, but how?

Will Maggie and Julia be able to find the answers? Will they have a relationship? Will they even be able to survive the attempts on their lives?

This book had several bad reviews among some good ones. I always like to make my own mind up about a book and decided to give this one a try. I really enjoyed it. It had a good strong storyline that kept me wanting to read faster to find out what happened. The two main characters really complimented each other and were further enhanced by a strong cast of supporting characters. Some nice and some not so nice. The romance between Maggie and Julia with their ups and downs added some nice spice to the story. Unfortunately, this looks to be Erin’s only book. Apart from some fan fiction, I can’t find anything else she’s written. This is a shame as I would like to see more from this author.
